There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

Read the book years ago. Saw there was a second book in the series on Audible and thought i would download this one as well to remind me of the story. Still had me intrigued and captivated this second time! Well done Peter Clines. Also performed superbly which is so important on an audiobook. Well done Ray Porter.

Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire's goddess. He never returned. Now it's Corin's turn. He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.

I stumbled across this book and I'm so glad I did! Great story that's well thought out and woven together. The performance of Nick Podehl really brings it all to life. All books should be narrated this way! The whole book had me captivated and enthralled, right up to and including the last sentence! Didn't see that coming! Looking forward to part two!

Really good story. Didn't read too much about it before listening and was not expecting the direction it went in - which was a great surprise and provided lots of intrigue. Many questions remain unanswered which i assume will all be made clear in the next book. Looking forward to it!!

Songs of the Earth is the most compelling debut fantasy novel since Patrick Rothfuss first hit the shelves four years ago, with the stunning The Name of the Wind. Combining superb characterisation with an epic story, it is beautifully told and engaging from the very first word. Gair is under a death sentence. He can hear music - music with power - and in the Holy City that means only one thing: he's a witch, and he's going to be burnt at the stake.

Cassie Forrest could almost believe life at Kingdom Come Farm is perfect, with Adrian and her friends at her side and spring on the way. The spring thaw also means millions of defrosting zombies, however, and if the past year has taught her anything, it's that life in this new world is highly imperfect. When Safe Zones throughout the country begin to disappear and the zombies at the fences grow in number, Cassie clings to the hope that if she has the people she loves most, it will be all right.
